Fantatic ballasting Liam! A very well done, it looks just right, there isn't too much of the ballast and there isn't too little!


All the best!

Rhys

P.S. - Adam I'm sure Liam and I would find some pictures very useful! Thanks :D .

Small update- no pics till tomorrow when the camera returns :(

The ballast is down in the whole TMD apart from the very end of the storage siding by the shed as I might make it overgrown. I also decided against putting a concrete yard in as the fuelling point looks good with ballast around it.

Next step'll be to keep up the balalsting for another few years until the mainline's done but the TMD is ready for some scenery :)

Thanks Adam, the oil stains were inspired by what Rhys did on his layout, or at least similar.
It was filler rubbed into the ballast to make it look soaked with oil (looked like snow when it wan't painted lol).
Then painted black and PVA over it for a shine.
Still not as good as Rhys' version though :wink:

Looks interesting, but I would have included a cross-over from the inner loop to the outer loop close to the station to gain access to the fueling depot.

Nice idea, would have made for less stopping and reversing in the TMD but a little late now :lol:
A few vids uploaded, enjoy 8)

Coorrrr what an update! Someone get me some popcorn! Those oil stains look fantastic, I know what you mean by the filler looking like snow before you paint it! The GM Shed looks great! A lovely model there, looks very nice in a Freightliner livery but my favourite has to be that beautiful Steadfast (please excuse the Class 60 pun :) ).


Fantastic work!

Two things.

1. How big is the main area?

2. Happy 1000th post!

Got to say, like everyone else, I like the oil stain. Might have a go at that my self.
